I am the Light of the World
You people come and follow me.
If you follow and love, You'll learn the mystery
Of what you were meant to do and be.

1. When the song of the angels is stilled.
When the star in the sky is gone.
When the kings and the shepherds have found their way home.
The work of Christmas is begun!

2. To find the lost and lonely one,
To heal that broken soul with love,
To feed the hungry children with warmth and good food,
To feel the earth below the sky above!

3. To free the prisoner from his chains,
To make the powerful care,
To rebuild the nations with strength and goodwill,
To call a man your brother everywhere.

4. To bring hope to every task you do,
To dance at a baby's new birth,
To make music in an old man's heart,
And sing to the colors of the earth!

I sung this song in choir as a teen. I am looking for the music. If you have the music, please let me know.

I need to download this to my computer, does anybody know where I can find it on I-Tunes? The versions they have by Kelly Phelps are different from this one. Help!

I need to find the music for this song to load on my computer. All the versions I have found are not of this particular song. Ideas?

Words and music are by Jim Strathdee... he has published it and you can download it from Easy Music Downloads.

The song is based on a Christmas poem written by Howard Thurman, an early influence on Martin Luther King, Jr. Jim Strathdee used Thurman's poem to create a beautiful hymn.

The words to the hymn are based on a Christmas poem, "I will light candles this Christmas" by Howard Thurman, an early and important influence on Martin Luther King, Jr. It is a beautiful hymn!
